Now this next part I may lose you on because I am unsure of how to explain it but I will try. If you have an easier way to do this
that is fine :) Whichever you feel better with
Click on the tube layer, then layers, duplicate. Drag this layer down under the frame layer and close it off. Click on the original tube layer and
erase any parts of it that may be sticking out where you dont want them to (like the wings were on my tube at the top) ( I wanted her leg sticking out so
I did not erase that part. Once this is done, click on the closed tube layer and reopen it
erase any parts you do not want, ( I erased the peices that were over the flowers deco but kept the leg again...
It takes a little practice but once you get use to it its easy. (If this doesnt make much sense just place your tube how you
want her to be lol)
Add drop shadow to all layers except the tube and paper layer. My settings are V1 ,H2 ,O67, B 5.00
Layers, merge all visible, if you are happy with it then add your credits and save.
I added a gradient glow to the name which is optional.
